In an interview on MSNBC yesterday, an editorial writer for the Wall Street Journal (now that it's owned by Rupert Murdoch, it should change its name to the Wall Street Urinal) declared that the federal government should have let GM collapse and be broken up. He did not see the bailout as benefiting anyone except the unions.
Frankly, this sort of honesty is unusual. He and his cronies at The Urinal were more concerned with trying to destroy the unions than with saving the many of thousands of jobs that would be lost if GM had gone under.
Their agenda is to destroy the American middle class, and undermining the unions is a high priority in achieving this goal.
